A superb apartment in a former Victorian tweed mill.

The leisure complex has an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi, tennis court, squash court and gymnasium. The terrace behind the leisure centre is where residents are able to enjoy al fresco' dining, looking out over the recently landscaped garden, in one corner of which is an area for playing boules'.
The complex is managed by a full time site manager and assistant site manager, both of whom are dedicated to efficiency, cleanliness and very high standards of maintenance. The site staff are ably supported by a board of residents.
The accommodation includes a spacious entrance hall and a kitchen with a range of units with integrated appliances. There is space for a table and chairs providing a lovely place to enjoy breakfast.

The property benefits from a garage with electricity and storage as well as an allocated parking space.
